After using the method above to get to 14.3.1, how should I proceed to get to 14.4 or future 14.x updates?

Edit-

After no responses, I decided to try using the System Settings Software Updater, that seems to have worked as expected, and so far no enrollment screens after a couple days.

How did you manage to see the update in System Settings? Mine just says "your Mac is up to date"....

/etc/hosts
Check your host file and deblock "gdmf.apple.com"

It worked, I can see the update to 14.4 now. Can this be left unlocked for the future updates?

FWIW, I had the following FQDNs blocked at the router:

iprofiles.apple.com
mdmenrollment.apple.com
deviceenrollment.apple.com
gdmf.apple.com
acmdm.apple.com
albert.apple.com

I had them blocked in /etc/hosts as well. Still was able to update. Based on a quick search, gdmf.apple.com is specifically for MDM-managed devices.

Here is a list of all the FQDNs for the various services Apple devices might use

I have an unmanaged iMac and a used-to-be-managed Macbook Pro on my home network. My employer sends out alerts when there are major MacOS updates, critical updates, & patches. When the 14.4 notice came out, I went in to Software Update on both systems, and the 14.4 update showed up automagically as expected. No unblocking on my part.

If you truly do HAVE to unblock gdmf.apple.com to get updates, your machine may actually still be enrolled, but some other step in one of the techniques here suppresses the nag messages.

To check that, open Terminal and enter the following command:

profiles status -type enrollment

Your results should be :

Enrolled via DEP: No
MDM enrollment: No

Greetings, Do you know if there is a way to log in with this Macbook Air 2020 with Intel, it has remote administration with Jamf, it asks me to log in with a Microsoft business account when using a personal account it does not allow it and when giving local login it asks me for a password but I do not have it.

If there is any option?

FWIW, this worked for me. Some of the steps might need to be more prescriptive for folks not very familiar with Macs, but I got it working in one pass. If you want a different drive name than "Macintosh HD" you will need to edit the global constant lines of Autobypass-mdm.sh to reflect the drive name you want.

I did have to connect to the internet to activate as well, but as soon as I hit the "This device is owned by an organization" page, I hit COMMAND-Q, booted in to Recovery Mode, then picked up the instructions from there and ran the script.

Just adding that this post in reply to the above method is what got me sorted out. Clean install (didn't have to use USB), reboot to recovery at the MDM screen, run bypass script and reboot. Dead simple.

How to Upgrade to Sonoma Without Risking Activating DEP/MP?

There is some conflicting information here (and on YT), and I am not a pro user... Could someone kindly explain or point me to the current recommended process to upgrade from Ventura to Sonoma without risking my Mac being enrolled into DEP/MDM?

Originally, when I acquired this Mac, DEP/MDM was circumvented by blocking IPs on my router, installing from USB (clean install), and then editing hosts files. However, now I would like to upgrade a running system and Sonoma seems to have additional tricks to enroll us. Hope someone could help me run the upgrade to Sonoma without risking DEP/MDM (this is why I have not upgraded until now, but I have to do it now as a tool I use needs Sonoma now).

P.S. This means I am not DEP/MDM enrolled, correct?

Hi everyone. I updated to Sonoma 14.5 From Monterey yesterday and after installing I got a pop up saying remote management but just hit skip now and worked fine after. Today I tried using it and now the same pop up comes up taking over my whole screen without a “skip now” button. I tried everything on here but nothing has allowed me to use the Sudo codes in terminal in regular mode because the pop up comes up within 10 seconds of booting up Everytime. I don’t want to erase the MacBook because I have a lot of data on it I need.

Any help would be great. I am able to go into recovery mode find but that’s about it. Thank you!

Hi, I have been using my Intel 2019 MBP since 2020 with the host blocked. Im still on ventura.
I recently ran a script to see if my Mac was still under MDM. I got the results that it was not on a MDM server. I thought that maybe this was because I had the hosts blocked, I removed the host entry and ran the test again with the same result. I have now had the Mac running 24 hours without the hosts blocked and not received any pop up messages. Is it possible that my Mac has been released from MDM? How can I tell for sure before updating to Sonoma ? Thank you script. https://github.com/rtrouton/rtrouton_scripts/tree/main/rtrouton_scripts/check_mdm_enrollment

No, the script is only checking on the local system if the mdm profile is installed or not.

Install Sequoia developer Beta, risking DEP

I am thinking if I should install Sequoia directly through Sonoma. It works perfectly now without DEP notification.

`charlvin@LCWMacBook-Pro ~ % sudo profiles status -type enrollment

Enrolled via DEP: No
